- About us
ERCO is a leading international specialist in architectural lighting, using 100% LED technology. The family business, based in Lüdenscheid, in the heart of Germany, now operates as a global player with independent sales organisations and partners in 55 countries worldwide. Founded in 1934, ERCO pioneered architectural lighting across Europe in the 1960s, and today, less than 50 years later, is the first established luminaire manufacturer with a portfolio based entirely on LED technology.
Around 1,000 committed and dedicated ERCO employees worldwide ensure that LED technology is developed from a pure technology into a sophisticated lighting tool - because perception-orientated lighting design, implemented in the context of efficient visual comfort, is our mission. Focus at ERCO is given to open, interdisciplinary and international cooperation: While our ERCO luminaires are developed and produced carefully and with an eye on the future by our team at the Lüdenscheid Light Factory, our competent and motivated consultants at international ERCO sales offices ensure that they are used in thousands of different applications around the globe.
We would be delighted to offer you the possibility of experiencing ERCO lighting tools in operation: in any of our ERCO showrooms worldwide as well as in workshops at our headquarters, and of course at trade fairs and other industry events.
